Idk how long ago the filter change was. We bought it used at 130000 miles. What are tell-tale signs of a sensor going out?

Then it probably needs serviced I've done this before and the fluid smelled burnt and it wasn't shifting right I did it and it fixes it so it may work I'd try it before spending $$$$$ on a rebuild

Really sounds to me by the Rpms that your not getting out of second and it's probably blown unless its the filter and fluid

Had a 98 chevy van the throttle position sensor went out it stayed in second gear would not go on up in to drive or over drive. And I had a 97 Buick that would not go into over drive that was speed sensor.

Soooo. We changed the trans oil and filter. It didnt help. It wont start moving till the revs get to 4000 and then it barely moves so the trans is completely
Shot. Were getting a 91 honda accord from my uncle.
